Rheinmetall and UVision announce first order for HERO loitering munitions from a NATO country

Germany’s Rheinmetall and Israel’s UVision will supply HERO loitering munitions to a significant European NATO country special force. The contract is said to be worth a few million euros. In 2021, Rheinmetall will partner with UVision to sell its HERO family of loitering munitions in Europe.

The undisclosed customer requested a classified number of Hero-30 combat and training munitions, a simulator, training courses, and integrated logistics equipment and support. The order was placed in July 2022, with delivery set for the following year. The use of loitering munitions to attack Russian artillery positions from a safe distance has piqued European interest in them.
